One of the good things about having kids is that when your eyes start wearing out,
your kids can spot things you never would have noticed.
Like this Green Longhorn Beetle.
It was zipping all over a little tree near our front door on Father's Day weekend,
but I never would have known it if it weren't for my kids.
Even after they pointed it out to me
...again and again and again...
it took a long time for my eyes to find it.
I was determined to take its picture, but... yeesh!
It was twisting and scurrying so fast along the limbs that it's a wonder I captured any images that were remotely in focus.
And then, uh-oh...it spotted me.
Or maybe it had just had enough of me and my camera.
I recognized that look.
Very similar to the one my kids often give me when I point a camera at them.
Just one more, I promise! Hold still!
Great! Thanks! All done.
(I haven't seen him since. But then, that doesn't mean he's not there!)
